Charity Events Volunteer

Over The Wall is a charity that helps children, young people and their families, living in the UK, reach beyond the boundaries of their health challenges to discover a world of mischief, magic and new possibilities. We do this by providing free of charge, transformative activity camps throughout the UK. We create an inclusive environment where children and young people can be themselves, thrive and grow.

We attend a range of events throughout the UK to raise money for our unique, life-changing camps. These range from school fairs, to community events, to our annual Christmas Gala. You’ll be helping the team to set up and pack away, chatting to visitors and helping with activities. This might include running a tombola or raffle, face painting or overseeing games, and promoting Over The Wall’s unique vision and work. Every event is different, and we work hard to bring a bit of Over The Wall’s trademark mischief and magic into the community to spread the word. Full training will be provided.  


Volunteering with Over The Wall provides a fantastic opportunity to do something rewarding and make a difference to others! You will be part of a team, make friends and have fun, and develop skills including teamwork, creativity, and communication. You will have a choice of dates and times to volunteer, to raise money to keep the magic of camp going for seriously ill children for years to come.  


  • Accessibility
    We aim to make everything we do as accessible as possible, including the locations in which we volunteer
  • Age restrictions
    Under 18s are welcome to volunteer with us, as long as they are accompanied by a parent/guardian throughout the event. For certain events we will require a DBS check and references to be obtained, the cost of which is covered by the charity. All new volunteers will have an informal interview where we will tell you more about camp and find out more about you.
